how does that play into the u.s. ability to do this in yemen? >> well, i think both the united states and al qaeda in a sense are taking advantage of the power vacuum that exists in yemen. al qaeda obviously thrives in chaotic environments. and there's some reporting indicating that they have taken a town in southern yemen. they're unlikely to take power in the country. they're a relatively small group. but similarly the united states sees that al qaeda is taking advantage of the situation and i'm christine romans. is essentially going forward here's what's happening on this with a set of policies including "american morning." the u.s. reportedly conducting a drones and unusually fighter secret war in yemen, jets essentially to make sure intensifying its air assault on that they can't take control. military groups using armed i don't think they're asking drones and fighter jets to keep anybody's permission for this. al qaeda from rising to power the agreement that exists with there. i'm kiran chetry. saleh is now sort of moot in a it took about 30 hours for a new sense. i thing the post-saleh era has photo of congressman anthony weiner to surface on the web. begun in yemen. even his allies on capitol hill he's much more severely injured are bailing on this "american morning." than was initially portrayed. this is not a few scratches. he said he was going to step
3:01 am
down three times already. and now he's been forced out of welcome to "american the country. morning." good morning, everybody. it's thursday, june 9th. and so clearly this is an effort >> we're talking about the 30 hours, andrew breitbart who as barbara was reporting, to broke the story said he had this make sure that this group, which photo on our air. >> an explicit photo. poses quite a threat, you know, >> that he was choosing not to is really ground down in the release publicly for the sake of next several months. >> just quickly both of you can weiner's family, yet it's out. answer this, peter first, what >> 30 hours is all it took for about the worries of the u.s. it to be sweeping across the taking unilateral action yet internet. a lot of people opening up their again in a country like yemen as facebook and getting links to it it relates to the rest of the and the like. middle east and the other three the united states reportedly ramping up air strikes against theeate overs war we're in right al qaeda in yemen. now. >> i think it's sort of a "the new york times" is reporting that the obama nonissue. administration is waging a people in yemen have got -- this covert war on military targets is essentially three civil wars using fighter jets as well as going on simultaneously. armed drones. and they've got bigger things to barbara starr is live at the worry about than the united pentagon this morning. a huge power vacuum in yemen states right now. it's interesting as panetta goes to testify on the hill that the right now. a double-edged sword for the united states military is white house. >> reporter: indeed. involved in five separate wars good morning to both of you. we know that the u.s. military in five muslim countries. fairly unusual moment in had been training yemeni forces, american history.
3:02 am
we know there had been air >> reporter: i think that peter's absolutely right. strikes. panetta's going to make the case "the new york times" reporting that al qaeda in yemen does pose those air strikes have now a direct threat to the united resumed. this is so critical because the u.s. intelligence community has states and that's what makes are very concerned since the this situation so different. >> barbara starr and peter killing of osama bin laden that bergen, thanks so much for al qaeda in yemen was going to start trying to gain strength illuminating us on that story with new money, new funding, no out of yemen today. a lot of new developments in recruits and take advantage also the anthony weiner sexting of the unrest in that very scandal as well as more house troubled country, the violent democrats turn their backs on anti-government demonstrations. the congressman. all of this providing a vacuum six calling for him to step down. for al qaeda in yemen to fill. "the new york times" is also reporting that his wife huma and that is part of the concern abedin, a top aide to hillary here. "the new york times" reporting clinton, is pregnant. there have been more air strikes a source also says that weiner now and that some al qaeda operatives have been killed. called former president bill clinton to express his regrets you know, later this morning for his actions. leon panetta will be on capitol all this happening as this hill for his confirmation hearings as secretary of has surfaced. the explicit photo of anthony defense. we have an advanced look at some of what he'll be talking about. weiner's anatomy because of opie and he has submitted a statement to the committee about the and anthony. situation in yemen. they captured it off of andrew i want to read to you some of it. he's talking about aqap,
3:03 am
breitbart's phone. he said he would never post the al qaeda in the arabian picture himself and insists he wasn't in on it. peninsula, essentially al qaeda >> my website refuses to public in yemen about. this photo. he says, aqap is intensely they have admitted that they took this photo surreptitiously. focused on conducting a they said they did it without near-term attack against the united states and poses an any knowledge. they even said that there were immediate terrorist threat to no cameras there. u.s. interests and the homeland. >> that's a chance you take, al qaeda and its affiliate, though when passing around an aqap, are still actively iphone with the picture. kate baldwin with more on the plotting attacks with the growing list of representatives asking weiner to quit the house. principal goal of successfully >> reporter: the deafening striking the u.s. homeland. that's why all of this, of silence from democrats most course s so important. this arm of al qaeda does pose a significantly congressman weiner's fellow democrats in the direct threat to the united states, according to the u.s. house has now turned into a government, they've already concerted effort to push him proven they can reach out and touch. out. half a dozen house democrats are you just have to recall the so-called underwear bomber in december of 2009. saying they can't ignore this scandal any more. that was a man said to be affiliated with al qaeda in it includes allyson schwartz, yemen. that's why this now is in the mike ross, maine democrat crosshairs of the obama administration. michael michaud, indiana kiran, christine? >> barbara, quickly, so the democrat joe donnelly who is hospitalization of president running for senate.
3:04 am
saleh, he's in saudi arabia, how all coming out to say simply he does this leave this opening? how does this help the u.s. tore should resign. listen here to congresswoman allow the u.s. to do this? >> it lets the u.s. perhaps schwartz. >> yes, and this is very maneuver a little bit more to personal decision as an have saleh out of the way. individual member of congress, they wanted him to step down but i was absolutely appalled anyhow, that has not technically when i heard about the behavior happened just yet even though actions of congressman weiner. he's out of the country. but make no mistake, it does i think it's inappropriate cause more unrest in this very behavior. troubled country. violates the confidence and essentially there is not a trust that his constituents central government that can control yemen at this point. should have in him. >> congresswoman schwartz is tribesmen, al qaeda insurgents are throughout the country and interesting because she's the head of recruiting efforts for house democrats in the 2012 controlling various factions and various pieces of territory in election cycle. that public statement is part of yemen. a new stepup effort to force that is not good news. not good news to have a central weiner out as one democratic government in control of the source put it to me, it's a entire country. all that does is leave al qaeda signal that represents a growing concern within the caucus. more room to maneuver possibly. the scandal is not only a distraction from the issues >> barbara starr for us this morning. democrats want to be talking we'll continue to follow up with about but it's becoming a you. thanks so much. new developments in the campaign issue which is a big anthony weiner sexting scandal. problem which is why we're seeing a turn of the tide.
3:05 am
more democrats turning their >> another potential problem reporting out there that congressman weiner exchanged backs on the congressman. six calling for him to step e-mails with a porn star down. "the new york times" is reportedly coaching her about reporting that his wife human la what to say if asked about their abe din, a top aide to secretary relationship and also reportedly offering her to be able to talk to someone on his team if she of state hillary clinton is needed a professional pr person. pregnant. how could this potentially >> all this happening as an affect the ethics investigation explicit photo of anthony if this is true? weiner's anatomy is all over the >> right. if this would check out in that internet now thanks to radio hosts opie and anthony. there was pr help provided by they captured the photo off of the congressman's actual andrew breitbart's phone when he congressional office, one of the passed it around the studio issues and ethics rules that really a lot of people are saying he had it. pointing to is the rule having breitbart said he would never to do with use of official post that picture. he said that on our show as resources. nancy pelosi, the democratic well, and insists that he was leader, even when she called for not in on it. this investigation, said that's >> my website refuses to publish one question she had, if this photo. congressman weiner had used they have admitted that they official resources in his sends took this photo surreptitiously. of lewd photos or inappropriate they said they did it without my communications, calls, et cetera, that would be probably knowledge. what they'd be looking for in they even said that there were no cameras there.
3:06 am
investigating that element of this continuing to unfold story. >> we're live from washington with the list of representatives so that's one question they calling for weiner to quit the still have to answer. >> well, the saga continues, house as well. obviously, this photo unfortunately. thank you. roaring flames from a circulating does not help his cause today. >> reporter: it does not, kiran. monster wildfire in arizona i can assure you that democrats forcing the mandatory evacuation and his colleagues were hoping of two towns in its path. after the press conference things would go away. with this latest photo that's authorities asking the residents of eager and springerville to circulating on the internet, get out while they can. it's not going away. the deafening silence that we crews expect slightly calmer heard from many of congressman winds today will help them make weiner's fellow democrats after progress in fighting this fire all of this has kind of come out which is now officially zero has now turned into really percent contained. nothing less than a concerted delta backing down on extra effort to simply push him out. bag fees for troops after two about half a dozen house u.s. soldiers posted a video democrats are now making it clear they can't ignore this campaigning their unit was hit with a $2800 baggage fee. scandal any longer. pennsylvania democrat allison the airline was accused of being schwartz, larry kissle, a unpatriotic. it has since apologized and said democrat from california, maine that they won't charge soldiers for extra bags. democratic michael mish aud. we'll hear what the soldiers even conservative democrat mike said and what people thought about it in a live report from hartsfield jackson airport. ross and niki tsongas. exxonmobil saying it found a
3:07 am
new source of oil in the gulf of >> yes, this is very personal mexico. it could yield up to 700 million decision as an individual member barrels making it one of the of congress. but i was absolutely appalled largest discoveries in the gulf when i heard about the behavior in the past decade. actions of congressman weiner. and i think that's inappropriate alanalysts say this proves that there's still untapped sources in the gulf of mexico. behavior. violates the katie and trust new developments in the that his constituents should casey anthony murder trial. the young mother searched have in him and i call for his chloroform 84 times in the months before her 2-year-old resignation. >> reporter: the list of members calling for him to go. daughter disappeared. what does this do for the congresswoman schwartz is interesting. defense's case? we'll talk about it coming up. she's the head of recruiting efforts for house democrats in the 2012 election cycle. anthony weiner's wife we're told her public statement now is part of a new stepup reports now that she's pregnant. effort to force weiner out. as one democratic source put to she's been silent in this controversy. we'll look at the woman who is a superstar in her own right in it me, it's a signal that represents a growing concern the democratic party. our question of the day. within the caucus. it seems that the scandal is not what would you do if you were only a distraction from the congressman weiner's wife. issue that democrats want to be debating and talking about, but chris said on facebook, i'd it's becoming a campaign issue, leave him. trust is the most important which is a real problem. thing in the marriage. >> another troubling report out break that trust and i'd be long there. i believe "the new york post" as gone. others saying this is none of
3:08 am
our business. well as tmz claiming they've send us an e-mail, a tweet, obtained some back and forth we'll read your thoughts later between the congressman and a in the program. porn star. they're alleging that he coached her perhaps to lie about her internet flirtation with him if questioned about it. does that add another layer on to perhaps the house investigation, the ethics investigation? >> reporter: taking the politics aside in this distraction element i talk about, the ethics investigation that he could be facing, we're told by ethics experts that the committee would be looking at all types of communication and how that communication was conducted and in what manner because there are two rules that many people are pointing to, two house ethics rules that people really are talking about. there's one rule that talks about behavior of members and how it reflects on the house, but also there's a rule about use of official resources. and this report seems that it could fall under this rule, you know, if it all checks out. really what it means and if this help was actually provided. so that seems to be that it could definitely be part of the investigation if it moves
3:09 am
forward. >> kate baldwin for us on this this morning. thanks so much. while congressman weiner is facing pressure from fellow democrats to step aside, his wife huma abedin is considered one of the most popular people in the democratic party. for years she's served as hillary clinton's closest aides starting as an intern in 1996 for the then-first lady. as mrs. clinton's political career took off, abedin moved up ...was it something big? thing you ever saw? the ranks. today she's the deputy chief of ...or something small? ...something old? staff. clinton thinks of her as a ...or something new? daughter. the 35-year-old abedin is known ...or maybe, just maybe for being unflappable, known for's something you haven't seen yet. her intelligence, striking style and unusual background. the 2nd generation of intel core processors. last fall she made "time" stunning visuals, intelligent performance. magazine's list of 40 under 40. she was born in kalamazoo, this is visibly smart. michigan. she's a muslim. at a very young age the family moved to saudi arabia. she returned to the united states to attend college. a magazine article back in 2007
3:10 am
hinted that she dated actor john cusack and the cyclist lance armstrong. during the 2008 presidential campaign when she was clinton's chief of staff she married congressman weiner. a ceremony officiated by former president bill clinton weeks before chelsea clinton. >> question today, what would you do if you were in her position? send us a tweet and we'll share your thoughts a bit later. we have dry heat and high winds that continue to fuel a monster wildfire in arizona. 600 square miles now torched. and authorities there have expanded evacuation orders including entire towns in parts of eastern arizona, home to some 8,000 people. they expect the numbers to grow in the coming days as this so-called wallow fire still burns out of control. in florida dry conditions are sparking brushfires across
3:11 am
the state. fires have burned in miami-dade county. and firefighters say they still have not been able to get it under control. it could threaten tourists at the casey anthony murder everglades national park. trial, chloroform is now at the heart of the prosecution's case. nearly half the country is the young florida mother is charged with killing her involved in a brutal heat wave. 2-year-old daughter. yesterday a forensic expert who and triple digit heat from texas to new england. examined anthony's home computer >> rob marciano tracking all of testified that he found 84 this for us. internet searches for the word he's feeling the heat in stone "chloroform" and how to make it. mountain, georgia. heat advisories really across >> here to talk about the latest the country. evidence and how it might impact >> yeah, and where there's not her case is sunny hostin. heat advisories in larger city you've been following all of the we'll look at air quality will ins and outs of this case. be poor because of the sustained how does the defense even begin heat that we've seen and the to explain away these 84 ozone buildup and the pollution in cities including atlanta. searches? because they did put -- the this is a popular tourist prosecution yesterday did explain why it would be attraction just outside atlanta where you can be sure later on difficult even though that was a shared computer, for anybody in today people will be trying to casey's family besides casy to seek relief from the heat. be the one doing those searches. and the top of this mountain >> that's right. behind me, stone mountain, the no one else was home. at least according to the largest piece of exposed gran prosecution. i think that the defense has net the world, that's not going done a really good job of to be the place to do it.
3:12 am
you'll have to find shade cross-examining these witnesses and injecting reasonable doubt, elsewhere. but this was a big one because this heat wave has unfortunately turned deadly. in tennessee, two heat related people feel really comfortable deaths, also in maryland. with computer forensics. this is certainly dangerous it is like watching a videotape stuff. across new york city yesterday, folks were just trying their or watlistening to an audio tap. best to get away from it or stay they'll have to put her on the cool any way they could. stand. high temperatures were which i have said all along. but to explain 84 searches for extraordinary. the humidity felt like it was chloroform. she also searched how to make well up over 100 degrees. chloroform. she also searched shovel record highs yesterday. allegedly. it was casey anthony. check them out. she searched so many damaging baltimore, maryland, 99, newark, things i think they've got to give this jury an explanation. new jersey, 99, 97 at laguardia. it seems to me like the tide has these are measured in the shade turned. at least according to my facebook page and twitter. don't include humidity. everyone is now saying uh-oh, d.c. to philly to new york could not only is she a liar, she see temperatures approach 100 premeditated this. degrees and the humidity will because she's searches occurred in march and the baby allegedly feel up and over that. died in june. places like chicago got cooled >> that's what the prosecution off with thunderstorms. is hoping the jury takes from all this, here is this woman who boston getting cooled off with thunderstorms. some are severe. is researching -- or her we've got a severe thunderstorm watch posted for parts of computer shows research about neck breaking and these other upstate new york until 11:00 violent acts and they're trying today. to portray her as one who can

3:14 am
there. in casey anthony's case, this misunderstood our bag policy, was on the anthony home but they have to pay for the computer. fourth bag, $200 a pop. we haven't even gotten to her laptop yet. >> the significance of that just doesn't seem fair. these guys are coming back from chloroform. we think -- what are they trying afghanistan. the first three bags are free to show for the chloroform, that she knocked the child out? and the fourth one is $200? and also there's some -- i guess they changed their policy. i'm confuseded about chloroform other airlines are following suit. >> because they all have that is detectable when a body is bag policy. >> three bags for three. decomposing, too. >> we learned this in their these guys have been in a desert opening statement, she used fighting a war for months. chloroform to knock her daughter out. to pay $200 when they come home. and there is evidence about chloroform being found in the >> outrageous. trunk of her car. so they're really trying to exxonmobil discovered a new connect the dots from the trunk source of noil the gulf of mexico. to her yard to casey anthony to this find could yield up to 700 million barrels. the computer. it would make it one of the i think it's actually quite largest discoveries in the gulf compelling. because it's a circumstantial in the past ten years. oil analysts say this proves case. how do you prove something like that there are still untapped that? no one will testify that they energy sources in the gulf of mexico. saw casey anthony use chloroform the stanley cup finals, the best of three. on her daughter. the boston bruins even at two no one will testify that she saw casey anthony put her daughter's games apiece. dead body into a trunk. a shutout of the vancouver but when they're connecting these pieces like this, computer canucks. the series now moves back to searches to the trunk to casey
3:15 am
vancouver for the pivotal fifth anthony being the only one at game tomorrow night. home, that makes a really also yesterday powerful testimony from a computer compelling, i think, argument. forensic expert in the casey as a prosecutor i used to argue anthony murder trial pointing to if you heard a weather report 84 searches for chloroform on that it was noticing and you went to bed and woke up the next her home computer. morning and there was a blanket is this a testimony that makes of snow. the prosecution's case or is you didn't see it snow but do there a plausible defense? you have a reasonable doubt that >> and president obama's it snowed? approval rating slips below 50% that's what a circumstantial as more americans fear another case is about. right now the weather report is great depression. looking bad for casey anthony. we'll tell you what these new poll numbers say. >> it is. with these forensic tie-ins. >> after a strong opening statement by her defense attorney. >> sunny is saying she'll need to go on the stand. >> i think she will. prosecution's case ends june 17th. we may see casey anthony on the witness stand in the next week. >> sunny hostin, good to get your take this morning, thanks. up next, if you own an suv, you may be safer than ever.
